For tomorrow’s cities to work, diversity and social inclusion must be central to how we design our urban spaces and data systems today.

I design communications for science, tech and social sector initiatives, bringing people together and around shared goals and interests. In 2013 the European Science Foundation reported a shift in our understanding of science toward dialogue, participation and governance, emphasizing the “integrative character” of science and society, and the need to rethink the relationship between science and society in its many forms. A former scientist and social activist, I connect biological systems principles with everyday life to promote urban sustainability. Look for updates this fall.
